Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 12/21/1990
"...[Goldberg acts] with dignity, reserve and a lot more credibility than might be expected....A careful, dispassionate, finally moving evocation of its setting..."

Product Description:

In the midst of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, dignified domestic worker Odessa Cotter does her part by walking the nine miles to her job at the home of civic-minded white socialite Miriam Thompson. When Miriam discovers Odessa's hardship, she volunteers rides, but her well-intentioned act earns her the wrath of the racist White Citizens' Council.

Plot Synopsis:

Odessa is a black maid working for socialite Miriam Thompson and her family in segregated Montgomery Alabama, circa 1955. Odessa, honoring the bus boycott initiated by Rosa Parks, walks 9 miles to work every day. When Miriam becomes aware of this, she supports and aids her employee, much to the dismay of Miriam's husband and social circle.
